He submits that there is nothing on record to even suggest that the applicant had ever withdrawn any amount or taken any benefits from the alleged bogus firms namely M/s Hanuman Enterprises and M/s Jai Bhagwati Sales. The Ld. Counsel requests that keeping in view the instructions issued pursuant to the meeting held on 12.11.2020 held under the Chairpersonship of Hon’ble Justice Daya Chaudhary, Judge Punjab & Haryana High Court, Chandigarh, the accused may kindly be granted concession of bail keeping in view of the prevalent Covid-19 Pandemic situation.

4. The aforesaid application has been replied by the respondent/complainant through the counsel, wherein the averments made in the application have been countered.
